This post is mostly for nature photographers, or those who like to shoot pictures of nature. The other day I was walking to the Grocery store when I decided to cut through an empty field filled with grass, plants and flowers. I had my camera with me so once in a while I stopped to take a picture. I'm usually wary of walking through fields, because of Ticks, but I had my thick jeans on that day so I wasn't too worried. Several hours later after I got home, I was relaxing watching TV, when my left hand started to itch. I figured I got bit by a mosquito, but I could not identify where the mosquito bit me ? Down here in Georgia they have these little black mosquitoes and once they bite you, its like your whole body starts to itch. Not sure if this is psychological or not ? The problem with this itch is that it started getting worse. First on my left hand, then on my right hand and even on my wrist. Soon I began to see welts building up on my fingers and my hands were beginning to burn. It got so bad that I had to pour cold water on my hands every 1/2 hour or so. That's when I realized that this was not just a mosquito bite, but something else ! I Googled "Poison Ivy" and sure enough I had all the symptoms. That night I had real trouble sleeping, because of the itching. When I woke up the next morning my hands were on fire. The next day, I went to Walmart and purchased some "Benedryl", and something called "Ivarest", but these did not help much. I also ordered something called "Tecnu Extreme" from Amazon, but this took about 4 days to get to my house. Once it got here I began using it 4 times a day. After about 2 days the swelling and itching were down ! Unfortunately this Tecnu cream removes all and I mean ALL the Oil in your hands ! Right now I'm using Aloe Vera gel to aid in the healing but my hands still look like the hands on an 85 year old.
